E3 2015 – Square Enix Roundup

With the big hitters out of the way, it’s time to roundup Square Enix’s E3 show.

We start the show with a trailer for  Just Cause 3..

Phil Rogers CEO Square Enix then takes the stage and  talks of the journey Square Enix have been on and gives a little tease of what to expect for the show.

Then Roland Lesterlin from Avalanche Studios comes on to talk about Just Cause 3. Avalanche pride themselves on the huge open world – 400sq miles, that let’s you do what you want, when you want. Expect new features  like the wing suit, upgraded parachute & grapple hook. Just Cause 3 will release 1st December 2015.

It looks mental and a lot of fun.

Yosuke Saito from Business Division 6 gives a sneak peak at Nier a PS4 exclusive.

Further updates on the game in Autumn this year.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is up next and Brian Horton introduces a behind the scenes video.

Then Patrick Naud from Square Enix Montreal takes the stage to introduce a new mobile game – Lara Croft Go. It’s a turn based adventure game and will be pretty similar in style to Hitman Go.

We then see a short montage trailer showing Final Fantasy 14 HeavenSward, Life is strange and Dragonquest Heroes.

Shinji Hashimoto the man behind the Kingdoms Hearts games is on stage next. But the for the first part he had no translator, so I have no idea what he said… But I’m guessing it was about FFVII because we then get to see the trailer again.

He then announces Kingdom Hearts Unchained Key mobile game iPhone & Android.

Then shows some Kingdom Hearts 3, much to the relief and delight of the audience members.

There is a lot of love for it.

He then introduces another new game – World of Final Fantasy showing a trailer.

Christian Elverdam from IO interactive is next on stage. He’s talking about a new Hitman game simply called – Hitman, which we also saw at the Sony conference. Releasing 8th December 2015, players are invited in to an ever expanding world of Assassination, where targets may only be around for  48 hours and then gone forever.

Another short montage trailer is shown, with Hitman Sniper, Triad Wars,Final Fantasy XV all featuring briefly.

Then we get to see a new trailer for Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.

As well as a world exclusive gameplay trailer.

Next we get to see what, for me, is the most anticipated game from Square Enix – Deus Ex Mankind Divided.

Takes palce 2029, 2 years after Human Revolution. You play as Adam Jensen.Augmented people treated as terrorists. Adam joins task force 29, investigate and stop terrorist attacks across the world – double agent in task force 29. Illuminati

Worldwide gameplay premiere.

It will be releasing early 2016 PC, PS4, Xbox One.

Yosuke Matsuda comes to the stage to announce Final Fantasy Portal App with an English version coming in the summer.

Oh, and one more thing… A New RPG Project developed by a new studio Tokyo RPG Factory. Dedicated to creating Japanese RPG’s

New console RPG Project Setsuna.

He then finishes up and closes the Square Enix show.

For me Square Enix has never really been a big show, but I know there will be a lot of people who are pretty stoked to see Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. Plus Tomb Raider and Deus Ex are looking great too.

– Will
